Santa Monica Vons’s Development Sees Design Changes

Santa Monica’s 710 Broadway development design changes shown in new renderings

By Dolores Quintana

The 710 Broadway Project developer has produced new renderings that show the design changes made to the proposed development and submitted them to the Santa Monica Architectural Review Board for approval as reported by Urbanize Los Angeles.

Developer Related California’s mixed-use apartment complex is a redevelopment of the site of a Vons grocery store into a five to eight-story building close to the Metro E line station. This proposed development is located between 7th Street, Broadway and Lincoln Boulevard and would include a total of 280 one, two and three-bedroom apartments with 354 underground parking spaces for occupants and visitors. These apartments would sit above a large 99,000 square foot retail space that would host a Vons grocery store, so the neighborhood wouldn’t lose the grocery store and a gym. 

Of the apartments, a grand total of 84 of them would be reserved as deed-restricted affordable housing. 27 units would be reserved for moderate incomes, 25 units would be reserved for households with 80% of the area’s median income, 16 units would be reserved for households with 50% of the area’s median income and finally, 16 units would also be reserved for households with 30% of the area’s median income. In this, this development would be reserving more apartments for lower-income families than most developments. 

According to Urbanize Los Angeles, LARGE Architecture’s design of  “710 Broadway is envisioned as three separate design expressions, with a curvilinear form facing Broadway, a folded facade along 7th Street, and waves on Lincoln Boulevard.  Plans call for an exterior of brick facade, glass, and wood accents, as well as open spaces such as a large podium deck and a rooftop amenity level.”

The staff report from the Santa Monica Architectural Review board recommends approval and states that the design and developer team listened and took the notes given by the community and made appropriate changes to the project.
